I truly believe that SLU offers students something more just than academics, athletics, or extracurriculars activities. Students who graduate from St. Lawrence bring a separate set of leadership skills to the table, which they've learned during their years here.
Why Canadian Studies? Canton's close proximity to Canada puts us in ideal location to study the nation. My first Canadian studies course was taken as a first-year student to fill a diversity requirement. From then on, I was hooked! I loved learning about a culture that paralleled the US in development, but maintains a "uniqueness" in culture and government. The similarities and differences provide plenty of interesting material to delve into, and studies of Canada can often be related to studies of other cultures.
